A few years ago I came across you felting amazing hats at the wood fair and my wife bought me the "horned beast"!
Well I didn't quite realise what I was getting........................At the time we knew it was something special but having had a few seasons of festivals and parties, there is no doubt that it is much more than a hat!
Wherever I go, it is admired by everyone.................strangers constantly come up and talk to me, have a feel, discuss the material, species.........others come to tell me they have a "Barbara Keal"! It is like joining a select club and it's one I'm very proud to be part of!
I just thought I needed to pass on all the love it gets and share my own happiness.......I still love it (it was at the Harvest festival this weekend!).

I remember seeing these last year but I hadn't remembered just how beautiful they are, I'm so pleased to finally be the owner of a 'Hairy Fox'! Julia Dupont, Visitor to Origin 2011
I saw the Financial times feature on the hats last year and was intrigued but I thought they might be itchy- I can't believe how soft they are in real life- it's amazing! Madeleine James, Visitor to Origin 2011
